Hard to believe it’s been almost a year since I started this little blog. I’ve had a lot of fun meeting the multifaceted people who are responsible for bringing craft beer to the River City. These people range from distribution reps, brewery owners and staff, and restaurants. I especially love when I meet readers of the site. Here are just a few things that caught my eye this week.

This being my actual birth day will make deciding what to do especially difficult because it’s not as if there isn’t just one choice. Restaurant Week has had me going back and forth on where to dine this night. Right now, I’m thinking Bistro 27. I know you’re thinking that’s perfect. I was reading over Bobby Kruger’s Libation Nation today and thought it’d be awesome to have him make me a signature beer cocktail for the night.
After dinner, I will be seeing the Blue Man group for the first time. I really hope they’re worth the hype.
An after show drink location is still to be determined. I’m open to suggestions.

Hardywood’s timing could not be more perfect. They are throwing a Spring Frolics party to celebrate the release of their first Barrel Series beer, Bourbon Grand Cru. This will also mark their sixth month anniversary. I will definitely be there to get my allotment. Get more info at the Facebook event here.
Oh before I forget, there will be cake. I’m still working out all the details but I will be bringing my birthday cake to the party. Right now it is going to be a Beeramisu cake using Hardywood Mocha Belgique.
